Have you been hoping to see The Hunger Games tournament come to your very own television screen? Thanks to The CW, soon you’ll be able to.
The new reality show Capture pits 12 teams against one another for 30 days. There is just one goal: Don’t get caught.
Capture is a tame version of The Hunger Games, a book by Suzanne Collins in which teams are pitted against one another and fight to the death. See the just-released trailer below:
“In this intense new wilderness competition, 12 teams of 2 will enter a fenced-in enclosure in the middle of the wild, where they must live for one month and compete against each other for scarce resources,” writes The CW in their official synopsis. “With $250,000 on the line, it’s a winner-take-all battle in which the teams must hunt each other down to survive.”
The show is executive produced by the three gentlemen behind NBC’s Ready For Love. The dating reality show aired two times on NBC earlier this year before getting canceled (new episodes continued to premiere on NBC.com).
Descriptions of the show indicate that each week one of the teams will be “The Hunters” and it will be that particular team’s job to capture as many of the teams as possible. There will be tracking devices on each of the teams that will display the location of the team if they stop moving for more than three minutes.
Of course, this competition isn’t as intense as The Hunger Games because no one is getting killed. Do you think it could hold a similar level of excitement as The Hunger Games‘ storyline?
Earlier today The CW announced a slew of release dates for their beloved fall shows. See when shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Supernatural, and more will be airing.
Capture premieres July 31 on The CW.
